Laser Therapy

For several decades now, doctors of human medicine have been harnessing the power of laser therapy to manage and treat a wide variety of illnesses, ailments and injuries in people. Today, this same innovative technology can also be applied to our animal companions, with the same incredible results. As part of our commitment to continuously offer the most cutting edge medical treatment options for our patients, Blue Ridge Animal Hospital is pleased to offer laser therapy.

What is veterinary laser therapy?

Laser therapy uses a high-intensity beam of light to target areas of the body that are experiencing pain, trauma, injury or other physical ailments. The laser itself is emitted from a small handheld device. It is a painless, non-invasive and drug-free way to reduce pain and inflammation, improve mobility and speed the healing and recovery process following surgery or injury.

Our companion therapy laser system provides for the fast and effective treatment of everything from injuries, like wounds or fractures; to chronic conditions such as arthritis; to neurological problems; dermatological problems; rehabilitation, and much more – all without the use of drugs, surgery or needles.

When the laser absorbed by the injured cells inside the body, it stimulates the body to heal from within by emitting non-thermal photons of light. Our laser therapy treatments are administered in a quiet, comfortable room, on a soft bed, so your pet can relax and enjoy their treatment. Depending on your pet’s particular condition and/or its severity, we will advise you on the number, duration and frequency of treatments we recommend to achieve optimum results.

If your pet recently underwent surgery, became injured, or suffers from some type of painful medical condition, veterinary laser therapy may be just the thing to provide the relief he or she needs. Give us a call today to find out if your pet could benefit from this revolutionary treatment option.
